This past weekend the Lifetime Docuseries Surviving R. Kelly had millions people including some of his peers, other artist, and entertainers in the music industry sounding off on social media.

I lot of artists, song writers, producers, record execs, etc are very confused as to how to respond to what they’ve seen and heard. We’ve all been inspired by this man. We’ve all been witnesses to his musical genius. We have shaped and molded talent we sign after his musical image. We’ve invested so much of ourselves into this man that it’s hard for us to let go. I no longer have that issue. I whole heartedly apologize for not coming to this realization sooner. I CANOT separate the music from the monster! My 3 black daughters won’t let me. What hurts even more are the facilitators around him. His team, his record company, the promoters, the radio stations! There has to be a line drawn. Enough has to be enough at some point. Who are we saying is worth protecting if we let this continue? I choose the lives of these young black girls! I’m sick to my stomach! Let me also say this! There are more men guilty of these crimes! Lets make sure none of them slip through the cracks every again! You are no king because kings don’t treat queens like this! #RnBMoney #TheGeneral
However, we would like to hear your thoughts and opinions on the Wake Up Club Monday morning.
You will be able to call 222-1039 or text your comments to 678-1039.
There is a lot to discuss like mental abuse, sexual abuse both men and women, how to handle someone telling you a loved one is abusing them, how to help someone who is a victim of human trafficking plus sooooo much more.
This is the perfect time to have an open dialogue on how our community can/should handle situations like this or similar to what we viewed in the Lifetime docuseries better moving forward.
(we ask for thoughts only if you have watched the docuseries)
In the meantime here are some more posts from celebrities via Instagram.
